Organizing a costume this year was a bit of a chore. Especially when the best idea presented was given to me two weeks before Halloween… And a week before a costume party in Salem. However Dr. Horrible was too good to pass up. I relished in the stress of putting the costume together.
The majority of components were fairly easy to procure online. The only issue was expediting the shipping from so many vendors. Getting everything by Friday made it worth the extra cost. The following is exact pieces.
- 750 Elkskin Welding Glove – Tillman
- Welding & Torch Safety Goggles — You’ll also notice they have other pieces grouped together. Though none are directly sold by Amazon.
- Boss Boot, Shrimper, White, Size 11)/ProductDetails.aspx?SKU=80792
The most difficult part was the lab coat. The only (relatively) close Halloween costume out there was a bust, no one had it in stock. After falling short on some custom costume web sites I tried Ebay. Paul Pape Designs was auctioning a good quality replica. It fit perfectly and really brought the look together. They shipped it overnight and can’t be thanked enough.
Next year hopefully an idea will formulate well before the holiday. But even if I can’t decide I’ll always have the great Dr. Horrible to come back to.

Is it wrong that I don’t know who Dr. Horrible is? And I agree, you need a photo on this post!
